It's been on of those months. Have way too much shit to do, and to complicate matters, I stupidly took on a new project on contract. This was supposed to be fairly easy, but it has been kicking my ass. Supplies haven't been coming in on time, had to make a bunch of shit from scratch, track down people to actually do the work, and still ended up spending 60+ hours this week working on this project. Really don't have time to deal with this, and we have at least 3 more weeks of this to get through before things calm down. Meanwhile, Partner is working like a crazy person as well, and Progeny has way too much going on as well, between band, choir, and sport-y stuff. Even the dogs have had issues, with New Dog having dog training classes in an attempt to get her to calm the fuck down, while Really Old Dog is...well, really old, and becoming even grumpier and smelly than normal. Meanwhile, have too much paperwork to do that I've been putting off (paperwork is the worst damn part of being an academic, IMO--how the hell do administrators handle it??), and several upcoming guest lectures that remain unwritten.
Sigh. Is it December yet?
